Lincoln Home National Historic Site Cultural Landscape Report review

Lincoln Home National Historic Site » Lincoln Home National Historic Site Cultural Landscape Report review » Document List

Superintendent Dale Phillips has announced the opening of the public comment period for the Cultural Landscape Report for Lincoln Home National Historic Site. Since the National Park Service (NPS) began managing the Lincoln Home in 1972, very few changes have been made to the cultural landscape.

The Cultural Landscape synthesizes prior historic research on the landscape, construction of the buildings, and historic use of the property. It traces activities in the neighborhood over time. A series of alternatives are presented. The NPS has contracted with an interdisciplinary team of architects, landscape architects, and engineers to develop the alternatives, and has brainstormed and tentatively evaluated the alternatives over the past year.

Because of the size of the document, an on-line version is not available. However, a digital version is available upon request.
